I wonder which historian came up with the idea of swapping over the
characters of James I and Robert Cecil - thus making Cecil tall,
handsome and affable, and James bitter and twisted, with a splayed foot.

And which historian suggested James should promise religious toleration
for Catholics in return for a blow-job?
